Founded July 2002

Blackwood distillery is a Scottish distiller founded in July 2002 with the aim of building Shetland's first Scotch whisky distillery. In May 2008, the company went into administration, but a new company, Catfirth Ltd, was established to continue the business.[1] In 2013, word of further funding came through, with a promise that a distillery will open soon after.[2]

Until Blackwood distillery is operational, Highland Park in Orkney remains the most northerly distillery in Scotland.


The company's first products went on sale in October 2003:

  • JAGOs vanilla vodka cream (17% abv)
  • Blackwood's Vintage Dry Gin (40% abv)
  • Blackwoods 60 Gin (60 %abv)
  • Blackwood's Premium Nordic Vodka (40% abv)
